Eleanor Meynell has sung professionally for over 30 years for a huge variety of organisations and in a wide variety of styles from Bach to Boulez, in opera, music theatre, cabaret, contemporary ensembles and early music. As a longstanding member of the Monteverdi Choir and a full-time member of the BBC Singers for 5 years, Eleanor has performed as a chorister and soloist at the Royal Opera House, La Scala, Carnegie Hall, Opéra Comique, the Lincoln Centre New York, Buckingham Palace and the BBC Proms.

An experienced teacher, Eleanor is inspired by the teaching of Thomas Hemsley and The Inner Game of Music author Timothy Gallway in their approach harnessing powers of the unconscious mind and imagery, and intention with commitment to text to achieve healthy and effortless technique.

Eleanor trained at Chetham's School of Music where she was a first-study pianist and received daily solfège classes. This early grounding in the Kodály musicianship has stood her in good stead for both teaching and the demands of being a versatile professional singer.

In 2018 Eleanor founded a classical chamber group enSEmble26 for whom she is the resident pianist and performs around 10 concerts a year in Sydenham, and Opera That's Nice! a vocal quartet together with her husband, performing al fresco opera galas in private gardens during the summer months. https://www.eleanormeynell.com
